Number Six: There Are Bloody Filming Goofs

No, we don’t mean bloody in the way British people use it. We mean it quite literally. In one of the episodes in season 8, one woman who had completely bloody clothes looked as if she had clean clothes after they pull her off of the floor. The struggle for continuity is real!

Each time it is aired, the show bones takes up appropriately 45 minutes. However, each first cut of the show is usually at least 10 minutes longer than the aired version every single time. It takes a lot of time to get just the rights parts in to make the story work.

Bones is known for her expertise on a number of things including bones. On most episodes, she finds clues by looking at bones. However, there is one episode in season six where she doesn’t work on anyone at all.
